Combat the spread of viruses and bacteria! – Pure Play is a safe, fun and vibrant artificial grass that actually helps to destroy viruses and bacteria.
Pure Play is a revolutionary artificial grass which is made using the breakthrough material, PURETi. The grass has a number of unique characteristics and exceptional qualities. One of the primary abilities of Pure Play is it’s disinfectant properties and ability to act as a catalyst in destroying bacteria, fungi and viruses.
This makes Pure Play an excellent surface for children to play on as it actively kills germs in the playing environment, helping to reduce the spread of diseases and protect people. The non-toxic coating has been scientifically proven to destroy the walls of viruses and bacteria leading to them being physically torn apart.
The actual artificial grass is based on our Pro Play product. It is just as durable, with a multi-toned pile and a light brown thatch. It has a fantastic feel and is a fun and vibrant surface for kids to play on. Pure Play has a special blue backing on the underside which distinguishes it as containing PURETi.

Essentially, the active ingredient is titanium dioxide (TiO2) which acts as a photocatalyst. When sunlight hits the artificial grass it can energise specific molecules in the material. This leads to a complex sequence of reactions that ultimately leads to free radicals that breakdown bacteria and virus cell walls, speeding up the process of killing them.
Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) – Covid 19
Does Pure Play kill Coronavirus? Pure Play hasn’t been tested yet against the new virus, Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) – Covid 19. However it has been tested and proven to destroy a comprehensive array of other viruses including; Bird Flu, E. Coli, Hepatitis B, Flu H1N1, Norovirus and notably, SARS Coronavirus which is structurally similar to the virus that has cause the recent pandemic, Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) – Covid 19.
Is It Safe?
The European Science Commission has determined TiO2 (which is used in Pure Play) to be safe in all forms. The material has been used for a number of years in a variety of applications including Concrete, Fabrics, Food packaging, paint, suntan lotion, food colouring and other plastics.
Credentials and Support
The materials used in Pure Play has been awarded honours for technological innovation by a number of prestigious institutions including the European Union’s iSCAPE project which has received funding from Horizon 2020, and the technology has an official partnership with NASA.
As well as virus destroying properties, Pure Play has a number of other amazing abilities which include; Air purification, sterilisation, anti-pollution, anti-odour and even anti-static.
How to calculate your roll length
For example, 5 will give you a length of 5m (10m2 coverage on a 2m roll or 20m2 on a 4m roll). Joining kits are only required if you are joining 2 or more rolls together.
